Delivering high-end computing systems and services to NASA's aeronautics, exploration, science, and space technology missions.
REQUESTING COMPUTING TIME AT NASA
If you are a NASA-sponsored scientist or engineer, computing time is available to you at the High-End Computing (HEC) Program's NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Facility and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 05.25.23 - A New Minimum in Southern Hemisphere Sea Ice Extent
- According to the MERRA-2 reanalysis running at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS), the sea ice cover surrounding Antarctica reached its seasonal low of just under 1.8 million square kilometers on February 19, 2023.
- 05.19.23 - NASA Goddard Hosts Third Cross-Agency Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Data Science
- To better prepare NASA to leap into an exciting future leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) and Engineering and Technology Directorate (ETD) hosted a hybrid, three-day conference, the Third SMD and ETD Workshop on A.I. and Data Science: Leaping Toward Our Future Goals, on March 21–23, 2023 at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
- 05.02.23 - Randy Koster: Modeling the Ways of Water
- NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) scientist and long-time NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) user Randy Koster talks about his work modeling land-surface processes and analyzing their interactions with the rest of the climate system.
- 04.28.23 - CFD Simulations in Space Answer Big Questions
- Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations have been used in the aerospace industry for decades to create lightweight designs, improve aerodynamics, reduce friction during high velocity scenarios like reentry and much more. NASA and its partners are using CFD for bleeding-edge aerospace research, including CFD studies for missions to go back to the Moon, with Space Launch System simulations run on supercomputers at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility.
- 04.26.23 - The History Guy: A History of NASA's Supercomputers
- While we often take the enormous amount of computing power at our fingertips for granted, it was the predecessors to our ubiquitous machines that first changed the world, quickly making things once thought impossible commonplace. One of the places where those enormous changes were done was at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California, home today to the NASA Advanced NAS Division.
- 04.26.23 - Simulations Probe the Impacts of Air Pollution on Premature Deaths
- Models from Aarhus University (AU) in Denmark and the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City and supercomputers at AU and NASA worked in concert to study the impact of air pollution on premature mortality — both globally and regionally — under several emission and population scenarios.
